New frontier for climate action by cities

New frontier for climate action by cities
Cities could play a much bigger role in cutting carbon, addressing up to twice as many emissions, if they joined together to tackle the climate impact of their consumption and influence global supply chains.

In the case of beef, responsible for almost 10% of global emissions, we show that collaboration between groups of cities across the world could lower the climate impact of their beef consumption by over 60%.

Our infographic highlights the key findings of the report

Championing climate leadership

Building the political mandate for climate action
Championing climate leadership
To coincide with the tenth anniversary of the Climate Change Act, we have published the results of new research into the attitudes of MPs to climate action, providing an insight into what’s needed to develop a stronger political mandate.
 
Using these insights, we are launching the next phase of our Climate Leadership programme helping politicians to understand climate impacts, and work with citizens to develop the right policies to meet the ambitions of the Climate Change Act, through the next decade and beyond.
